Hillybilly (David), Blackee (Anthony) & me, 93ben (Ben) have taken over running the forum after the passing of Rivergirl (Robyn) last year . I just wanted to let you know that I'm currently in the progress of cleaning up and updating things after I was able to finally gain access to it. We will post more later.

Re: Long spell of westerlies with embed fronts: July 27-August 5

hillybilly - Chilly 3C here this morning. 4.8mm in the gauge. Powers back on which is good (was out for about 12 hours following a tree down in our street). Might see some showers this arvo.
We were only out for 6 hours this time. Sorry you had to wait 12 hours.

Re: COVID-19 Discussion and Information

Glad you're recovering HB. Sounds like it was an awful experience, especially having to be at the point of visiting the hospital. Hope your sister is OK too Rivergirl.
Thanks snowfall. Still waiting for results, over 60 people have it from her ship now. Look after yourself
